Joseph "Joe" Biden, Jr. and Ronald McDonald were married Thursday at Birdie the Early Bird Special Inn in Sarasota, Florida. Willard "Mayor" McCheese, a friend of the couple, who was given permission by the State of Florida to perform the ceremony, officiated.
Mr. Biden, 58, is Vice President of NeilKinnock Plagiary: a Web-based tutorial site that teaches students what constitutes plagiarism and how to avoid it. He graduated from Cliff Notes College in Phib, Delaware and magna cum nutty from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, in Sarasota, Florida.
He is the son of Minnie Pearl and Gomer Biden currently living under the witness protection program out of embarrassment of him being their son.
Mr. McDonald, 49, is president of sales and marketing for Barry O, a regional chain of fast food restaurants on the west coast of Florida. He graduated from Larry Moe & Curly College in Shemp, Illinois and received a culinary degree from Hamburger Helper, in Poppyseed, Florida
He is the son of Emmett Kelly McDonald and Louby Lou McDonald of Yeehaw, Florida. His father, since retired, was a member of the famed Tramps Vaudeville Quartet along with late members, Krusty the Clown, Clem Kadiddlehopper and Freddie the Freeloader. His mother is the owner of Hope n'Change Money Store, 'we make money to lend money,' located in Kissimmee, FL.
The couple met in January 2010 at tryouts for a gay underwater hockey league in Tampa. "I flirted hard," Mr. Biden said, "and got his attention only after getting a penalty for unnecessary roughness."
One Saturday after practice, Mr. Biden and Mr. McDonald spent hours talking about their lives and discovered they both were patrons of the Spotlight Regional Theater whose productions include, "The Evolving Gay Man," "I Shot the Terrorist" and "No Sex Please, We're Gay Catholics."
"We get along really well and hardly ever fight, unless the Panthers and the Lightning are playing or Joe pulls out one of his whoopee cushions when we have company," said Mr. McDonald
The couple plan to spend two weeks in Bimini at the Copycat Lodge.
